he an enemy combatant? there's a couple practical legal reasons. the military law on conspiracies toward material support versus being an actual combatant are a little more vague but there's a practical sense. everybody who has been put through the federal court system, you get indicted there's about a year you're tried and then you're in jail. in gitmo they're still in hearings after years and years trying to figure out how to get to a trial. and that system is one that moves slowly and not terribly efficiently. >> john miller thank you. the cia has a new director this morning, the senate voted yesterday to confirm john brennan only after a kentucky senator's filibuster over drones. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you and to our viewers in the west. while senator paul's filibuster which got so much attention was designed to get an answer to a question he says is important, it's hypothetical can the president use a weaponized drone
7:09 am
to kill an american citizen on american soil. >> do you think it's constitutional to kill someone in a cafe in seattle or houston or -- >> reporter: it took the kentucky senator 12 hours and 52 minutes of talking. >> and i think that there really needs to be clarification from the white house before this goes forward. >> reporter: but he got his question answered. two-sentence letter to paul from the attorney general. "it has come to my attention" eric holder wrote" that you have now asked an additional question, does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an american not engaged in combat on american soil? the answer to that question is no." senator, were you satisfied with the letter the attorney general sent you? >> we actually were pretty excited after filibustering for 13 hours yesterday we get to declare victory today. >> reporter: while paul viewed his filibuster as a victory some republicans called it misguided. >> i find the question offensive. i do not believe that question deserves an answer.
7:10 am

7:12 am
who contribute to this are promised some ability to come to the white house and meet with the president. >> no that's not true. this organization is being fueled by grassroots contributions across the country. the average donation was $51. the president will do what he did during the campaign which is communicate to his grassroots supporters and ask for their help. >> in the white house? >> no not in the white house. there will be events where our supporters are briefed about what the president's doing but look the president has laid out a clear agenda. this organization's only goal is to help this president pass this agenda. >> jim, good to see you. i know you have a founder's summit where people who contributed will be gathering in washington next week. will the president address that summit summit? >> we'll see. we do know people will bring grassroots activists from across the country, some who have given us money, some who have not, all
7:13 am
designed to have a couple days where we discuss ways to pass this president's agenda. >> so you understand, jim, what the concern is. i know you're not ruling out that the president's going to go talk to them. >> correct. >> you have said people who contribute $50,000 may have an opportunity to meet with the president, cabinet members, all of you who are very close to the president. isn't this exactly a double standard? i mean you ran a whole campaign about mitt romney's secrecy, and access to special interests, and now you've got people who can contribute unlimited amounts of money and the president's going to go talk to them. >> well look we're going to disclose every single contribution we get, be as transparent as possible and we're building a grassroots network to pass the president's agenda. he's laid out a clear agenda in the state of the union of what he wants to do. there's been a stranglehold in washington by special interests and lobbyists and we'll be the grassroots effort in changing that equation.
7:14 am
>> is this the case of a campaign continuing? >> we went out and surveyed our members and our supporters after the election and 87% of them said they wanted to continue to work together to pass the president's agenda and that's what we're going to do that's exactly what we should do. we are really excited about bringing people across the country, we say to members of congress look, there's real consensus on immigration reform on gun violence on the budget. act and act now and i think that's the best thing we can do and i'm excited about this and it's the right thing to do. >> jim messina thank you. we're learning more details about wednesday's deadly rye lyly lion attack in california. >> reporter: investigators say the 550-pound lion that killed 24-year-old dianna hanson wednesday escaped from its feeding cage and attacked her while she was cleaning its enclosure. the lion known as cous cous did not maul her at some suspected

7:29 am
she says why she thinks we're not seeing more women in leadership roles. >> women gained more and more leadership roles for many years and ten years ago the trend has been totally flat women have had 14% top jobs in corporate america and any trend i've seen in business that goes up for a while and then goes flat then goes down. that's the trend. >> you think women's progress has plateaued? >> in many ways women's progress has not plateaued. they're getting more college and graduate degrees. where they're not making gains is the at the top of any industry in our country and the gains we've made in government which are recent are very small. we're now at 18% of congress 20% of the senate. the numbers at the top of the industry have been flat for ten full years. these trends aren't changing unless we do something about it.

i am very encouraged. corporate america is in great shape. so much cash on the balance sheet, productivity levels so high, and believe it or not, even with the talk of the sequester in washington and all of the noise that is there, the market has been able to shake off all of that noise, as warren buffett said so eloquently markets are stronger than government and that's what we've seen. >> who are the companies that are driving this? who are the big winners here? >> the big winners if you look from the 2007 are three areas totally unrelated. >> sectors. >> hamburgers home hard drives. so mcdonald's has been a big winner over the period, that stock is up 67% since 2007 when you look at homes, home depot has been a great stock and largely benefited from the recovery, and home prices in recent periods and then ibm, innovation, great leadership helping companies be even more productive, that's been a great area. >> does the smart money believe
7:32 am
it will continue? >> there are two schools of thought out there. there always are. the bears and the bulls. the bears say too soon too much, too fast the market's up almost 10% this year alone in the first two months that's like a year's worth of returns. so the bears say we're going to see a correction. the bulls say and i have to say i'm a bull i'm very optimistic this bull has legs and the reason being the unemployment story will continue to improve, consumer confidence continues to get stronger with housing and housing is getting better and better. >> so what about all the talk that the sequestration when those cuts would occur it would be a clip in economic growth t would hurt the market et cetera. that doesn't seem to have happened at all. >> i'm back to buffett, markets are stronger than government. i think that the sky is falling mentality, we're numb to it. the early days especially in the worst of the financial crisis washington you would see the

good morning to you. it's 8:00. welcome back to "cbs this morning." vatican officials say the cardinals will likely decide today when to begin their conclave. we'll have new information on the search for the next pope. plus caroline kennedy is here for our series on eye opening women, and only on "cbs this morning" she's making a big announcement in the memory of her father. but first, here is a look at today's "eye opener at 8." >> this is nasty out here this morning. i tell you what though it is not the snow. that's not the word is out here. it's the wind. >> from new jersey to maine, strong waves are pounding the coastline, up to a foot of snow could fall today in parts of new england. >> we're worried about the
7:59 am
coastal storm surge threat right on the east coast of massachusetts. >> unemployment hit its lowest rate in four years, 7.7%. a conclave date will be announced to day at 7:00 p.m. local time. officials are announcing the capture of sulaiman ghaith. >> he's going to be arraigned in manhattan federal court. this will probably be the biggest security operation we've seen in more than a decade. >> isn't this exactly a double standard? you ran a whole campaign about mitt romney's secrecy and access to special interests. so what's going on in the market? >> it's good. >> we're very excited. happy days are here again. all u.s. combat troops are set to leave afghanistan by the end of next year. >> when that thing comes down -- >> we're going to leave. >> always good wake up in new york city if you're not osama bin laden's son-in-law. >> yes. can the president use a weaponized drone to kill an american citizen here on
8:00 am
american soil? >> i love drones. you hear that drones? i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. all 115 cardinals who will elect the next pope are now together. >> today we may finally learn when the voting for the next leader of the roman catholic church begins. allen pizzey is in vatican city. what can you tell us? >> reporter: the vatican spokesman says the date for the conclave will be announced at about 7:00 p.m. rome time. he didn't say when it would actually start. he said possibly monday tuesday or wednesday. that will depend on the cardinals. a lot of them still want to speak in what are called the congregations. they have a lot to say, a lot to talk about and quite a few more want to speak. they're not supposed to speak to the press. one we spoke to on background said one thing the cardinals all agree on is the church needs, what he calls, a fresh start.
8:01 am
he says we have to ensure that the new pope has a very strong team behind him. that gives credence to the idea that they're looking not just at a pope but who will be the next secretary of state in order to clean up the vatican government. charlie, norah, gayle? >> when the papal conclave begins we'll bring you full coverage right here on "cbs this morning." for five days now a late winter storm has been causing trouble around the country. it's taking one last shot at the northeast. some parts of new england are getting self inches of snow. there's flooding and high surf along the coast. jim axel is in massachusetts southeast of boston. jim, you've been getting hit hard this morning. >> reporter: i'm not meteorologist, but i think this is just about the worst of it. it better be about the worst of it. we are in a parking lot in massachusetts with a good vantage point at the harbor behind me.
8:02 am
you can see what the situation is right here. for the last couple of days officials here have been concerned about the high tide on friday morning. they have been watching the storm move up the east coast and they've been concerned that the water would move in as the winds from the northeast whipped up the water, it wouldn't -- between high tide wouldn't let the water come out. when the high taid came friday morning, the water would come up and over the seawall breaching things. we've been watching the high tide come in and while the water is certainly up and you can see these waves crashes against the rocks and crashing against the seawall, right now at least in this part of sish at, we're not watching the water come up and over the seawall. we did have to move from the spot earlier before where we were watching the floodwaters come in behind us. so it is a situation very fluid this morning. >> jim axelrod, thanks. it's been a busy week in washington for senator rand paul's nearly 13-hour filibuster
8:03 am
to president obama hosting meals with some of his toughest critics. host of "face the nation" bob schieffer is with us from washington. good morning. >> how are you doing, charlie? >> let's begin with them calling the filibuster a stunt and on the other hand senator rubio supported it. what's the deal? >> it was a really big week in washington. rand paul is up justin bieber is down. the news from one end to the other. >> i didn't know you were following the career of justin bieber. >> nicely done. >> very well done. >> it's a stunt. there's no question about it. but there are good stunts and bad stunts. you know, the fact of the matter is this is a very very serious question. what are the rules about how we use these drones? that can be very effective. we need to know exactly when
8:04 am
they can be used and when they might or might not be used in this country. we really don't know the rules. and what rand paul did here is he called attention to this. this was an old-fashioned kind of filibuster the kind of filibuster that they used to have and that the senate was designed for. what a filibuster is for is to call attention to something, and ha is what he did for about 13 hours. i don't think that means we're going to have one once a week. what i've always objected to is this shortcut filibuster that we've had in recent years where a senator will just say i object when they vote to move -- to proceed, and that is to have a vote. you can just say it and then it just totally locks down the senate until they have a vote and get 60 votes to go ahead and vote on something. >> bob, you would say -- >> i would say that this is something that needed to be examined. i don't think it was all bad. >> senator rubio is quoting
8:05 am
jay-z and whiz khalifa, that was a very interesting tactic i've never seen before. let's talk about the dinner -- >> do you have any jay-z songs, bob, since you're up on justin bieber? >> no i'm a country singer and country aficionado. >> rascal flatts it is. let's talk about the dinner president obama had the other day with some of the republicans. some people say good bonding can come from good conversation and good food. do you think this was effective? >> things are so bad around here, gayle, that anything on this front is good news. the fact of the matter, people used to do this all the time. the president used to have people over to the white house, other presidents this president, of both parties. they'd talk about things hash things out. we're in such a mess here that the fact that the president invited some members of the other party to dinner became big
8:06 am
news. it was big news yesterday when he invited chris van holland of his own party to come to the white house and have lunch. so i think it's all good. i'm suddenly creating a reputation for myself as the hopeless romantic here but i kind of feel like maybe these are good things. when you judge where you are, you follow the old saying, in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. here we're actually seeing people, quote, talk to one another. >> being a romantic is a good thing, bob. >> well whatever. >> bob, quickly, speaking of good things, who do you have coming up on "face the nation?" >> justin bieber will be our lead guest. michael bloomberg. we're going to have michael bloomberg. and a variety of people from the other side. maybe justin bieber toward the
8:07 am
end. who knows? we ought to call him. >> i only hope he puts on a shirt for you, bob schieffer. >> schieffer and bieber singing together. >> there you go. >> bob's guest, once again, on face the nation will be new york city mayor michael bloomberg, former florida governor jeb bush ohio senator rob portman and maryland congressman

after 55 years, it's very difficult for someone to get a fair trial. he has a credible alibi that is found in fbi documents, but they didn't get into his trial, because normally it's normal for police reports not to go in it would be a cop, but all of those investigators are dead. >> i was in the nypd when we had the first squad. technology and science is developed to tell us things for certain that technology that didn't exist at the time -- and then the cold case murder unlike a fraud, theft or rape the only voice that person has is the system and the system can't forsake them. >> so he is saying there should be no statute of limitations. >> i'm thinking that too.
8:20 am
>> but you want the right person who is convicted. what about the whole idea that these are constitutional rights. the right to confront your accuser. one of the witnesses against him was his mother on her death bed. she said something like those two little girls, the one that disappeared, jack did it tell someone. that was allowed in the trial, nobody asked any follow up questions. >> and you say with the exception of one witness, that they're either dead or senile. >> i think when you look at this, you take this case and they have all of the reason that's a 50-year-old case is problematic. there are other cases that because of technology or better investigation, or a new witness the cases are much clearer. we can't talk those aside, and say somebody will get off the hook because of one or two cases -- >> john you get

8:31 am
wishes of his constituents for what he considers the best interest of the country. >> as a senator he won the pulitzer prize for the book "profiles in courage" which chronicled legislative bravery in the senate. today caroline kennedy carries the lantern of her father's legacy recognizing outstanding public servants each year with the profile in courage award. >> i think our family was looking for a way to sort of honor my father's memory at the library and also celebrate the quality that he thought was so indispensable. one of the really touching things was how much it meant to former president gerald ford. i think in some ways it was vindication of him for his action to pardon former president richard nixon. >> only those willing to lose for their convictions are deserving of posterity's approval. >> most people believe that pardon cost him the presidency.
8:32 am
>> past honorees included supreme court justices who struck down the ban on gay marriage. they lost their jobs in retention election a year late sgler the law doesn't change. constitutional provisions and the concept of equality do not change based on public opinion. whether i lost my job or not wasn't important. >> in 2002 the profile in courage award didn't go to an elected official. it was offered to the public servants of september 11th. >> allow me to say a few words about courage and cruelty. >> four years later it went to alberto mora. >> a lawyer for the navy who found out there was things going on at guantanamo that he felt were un-american. >> the services are trained in geneva. the national standard is that we simply don't abuse people we don't abuse captives who are

8:34 am
hello, caroline kennedy. >> hi. >> your father believed that to much is given much is expected. political courage in particular was very important to him. it seems very hard to find these days in washington, but you found something. >> i think this award has really taught me that there are people who are courageous at all levels of government. i think the point of the award and something that my uncle teddy believed in was that we need to do more to celebrate those people and recognize them and tell other people about them so they as citizens we require, expect support courageous politicians. and i think that that's -- it was easy in the beginning. people said you'll never find anybody. but, in fact, there are many people -- we get lots of nominations every year and self nominations. >> self nominations? >> pick me really? >> mostly nominations. it's a really inspiring process. >> what's the process? >> well we have a committee of very distinguished republicans
8:35 am
and democrats. we have many of my uncle's former colleagues senator chris dodd lindsey graham olympia snowe and thad cochran as well as members of congress and active people elaine jones, we have a good group of lawyers and non-lawyers. >> i'm dieing. who won? >> this year -- we're going to announce it? >> yeah. >> we had our big discussion this week and it's gabrielle giffords. >> what a choice. >> why her? >> i think one of the things that obviously everybody knows of her tremendous incredible courage. the fact she went through this obviously horrendous tragedy and has recommitted herself to the political process i think is something that is really inspiring. obviously for anybody in public life who is willing to do that because it is tough these days. i think for people just in their own lives to see that kind of courage in somebody who is just willing to persevere and keep
8:36 am
fighting no matter what happens. >> the people who have been nominated, do they know they irp in the running or do you call them and they pick up the phone and it's you on the other end of the line. >> i had such a wonderful conversation with her. it was really heartwarming or touching for me. it was really emotional, i think for both of us. she was really thrilled and i think apparently she has read the book over the years and is a tremendous political -- >> political courage and personal courage too. >> right, right. >> i think our definition of courage has and will continue to evolve. she certainly embodies today i think, one of the most courageous people any of us have ever seen. i'm looking forward to meeting her. >> you haven't met her before? >> no. >> she picks up the phone, and it's like hello, this is caroline kennedy. it really is like that? >> it really is like that. >> can we talk about politics?
